BUSINESS owners Robin and Nikki Coombs have been making cloth nappies for the past three years from their home in Canina, and selling them online.
Products include Aio (all in one) nappies and Ai2 (all in two) nappies, fitted nappies which require separate covers, and "nappy knickers" for toilet training, all of which are washable.
Mrs Coombs said the nappies were available in a range of fabrics including natural materials such as bamboo, which are suitable for children with sensitive skin and can prevent nappy rash.
She said they were perfect for Queensland's climate as they "breath" and can be worn on their own as they come in a range of designs, including custom embroidered designs.
"They're actually very attractive just on their own," she said.
"They're just so cute."
Mrs Coombs said the nappies were also very "simple, quick and easy" to use, despite what some people may think.
"They're like a disposable to out on," she said.
"Anyone can use them."
The Coombs family also stock wet bags (to carry nappies on the go), reusable wipes, blankets and products for mothers.
Their products were ordered nationwide, and overseas including France, America and New Zealand. However, Mrs Coombs said they would like to expand their local customer base.
"We find that we don't sell much locally because I feel the awareness of the new easy-to-use cloth nappies is not known enough," she said.
"People aren't aware or they think it's too hard."
She said people often avoid purchasing the nappies as it seems expensive, but the cost of buying disposable nappies can far outweigh the cost of investing in reusable ones. "That nappy could last two or three children," she said. "They can be passed on."
